I'm trying to get my PDF::Template linux installation to recognize the prerequisite pdflib_pl. I've downloaded and installed the pdflib-lite (which according to the only installation documentation I can find is supposed to work), but it's not recognizing it. When I run perl Makefile.PL
for the PDF::Template installation, I get: Warning: prerequisite pdflib_pl 3 not found
but it continues to install anyway. Trying to install through cpan fails instead. When I run a script using PDF::Template, I get Can't locate pdflib_pl.pm in @INC
I did the standard ./configure, make, make install on the pdflib-lite. Is there anything I should have done differently? I'm not finding any installation instructions with either PDF::Template or pdflib-lite. The only installation solutions google produces are to install pdflib-lite which I've already done. I see a pdflib_pl.pm file in both the pdflib-lite and the PDF::Template installation package, but I can't find where it may have installed it.
Sorry, I only know enough about *nix to be dangerous.
